Chocolicious by Geraldine Solon

A week after Blair Nightingale’s husband, Larry, dies, she learns she’s about to lose everything she owns due to a foolish mistake Larry made. In an instant, Blair’s life is transformed from rich, Silicon Valley trophy wife to poor, widowed single mom. Her only goal now is to provide for her daughter. As Blair begins to pick up the pieces, George—Larry’s best friend and the man she truly resents—seems to always be around. When Blair is overwhelmed by all the challenges she faces, she seeks comfort in baking rich, filled, three-layered cupcakes that her grandmother once taught her, and soon Blair's life is changed forever.

My Review:

I wanted to like this book more but I almost felt as if I was just going through the paces while reading it. Nothing really struck me. It’s about Blair who is grieving due to  recently being widowed, then she gives birth to her baby. Shortly after she finds out her husband left her with literally nothing. The story follows her through her struggles. At first it’s one bad thing after another and then some things seem to come too easy for her. One of the things that seemed too easy was the fact that she loses job after job but she almost instantly finds a new one every time; it just didn’t sit well with me. There were other things too but I don’t want to spoil the book. I think it’s just one of those things where the author is targeting a certain demographic and that demographic isn’t me. I don’t know, maybe parents may be able to connect with this book more than I did.

Overall Rating: 2.5 out of 5
